The wintertime weather is the main concern, In the section of the country where I live. Because of the long weeks of frigid temperatures and excessive snow, my neighbors and I spend a ridiculous amount of money on our the oil furnace. Central air isn’t really necessary for this area. Our summer season rarely lasts longer than four weeks, and the weather is often rainy and cool. However, periodically we’ll get temperatures in the upper eighties with high humidity. I had managed consistently during the summer season to find comfort with window fans. On especially tepid and sticky nights, fans weren’t acceptable and it was impossible to get comfortable or sleep. I finally gave in and purchased a portable air conditioning system for our family room window. I was surprised by how compact and budget friendly the machine actually was. The instructions were straight-forward and it fit perfectly into the window, so I had it installed and operating within a few minutes. The window air conditioning system is super powerful, despite the small size. It is able to cool the room down in a few short minutes. The air conditioning system runs quietly, effectively filters out contaminants and circulates the air. I am amazed by the improvement in the comfort, freshness and aroma of the family room. Since the window unit is programmable, I set it to start up shortly before I head to bed for the night. I have a cordless remote at hand, If I need to make any adjustments,. I don’t have to get up to change the temperature, increase or decrease fan speed or shut the unit off. I so prefer having the air conditioning system running over the window fans, and I’m ready to install it in the spring.
